Music, visions and policy – A conversation with Dieter Gorny and Tim Renner at MEDIA CONVENTION Berlin

With Dieter Gorny, the new commissioner for creative and digital economies in the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs, and Tim Renner, permanent secretary for cultural affairs for the federal state of Berlin, two cornerstones of the German music industry have recently been placed in key digital-culture positions. Re:publica CEO Andreas Gebhard will sit down with them on May 5, from 13:30 to 14:00, and ask what they want to accomplish there; whether their goals can satisfy their political functions and all stakeholders, not simply the “big players”; and how they can avoid regarding the world from the one-sided perspective of the music business.
